Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk room, 6th & 8th floor *Wrap Around Balcony End Unit ***
We traveled to Panama City Beach and stayed at the Shores of Panama during Easter Break in April 2009 and experienced the best family vacation in many years. After staying for a week we knew it was something we wanted to enjoy for years to come and purchased a new unit and quickly painted and furnished the unit to share with others. We own 2 units at the resort. You are welcome to call me and discuss any questions, 414 704 3720, Russ
Owner purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Owner chose Panama City Beach
We choose Panama City Beach due to its miles of sugar white sand shoreline (which has been rated as one of the top beaches in Florida) and abundant dining, entertainment and shopping.

Beautiful beach spot
This unit is exactly as pictured and described. We were comfortable throughout our week+ stay. Owners were helpful without being intrusive.
The views are gorgeous- our favorite views of any Shores of Panama unit we have used. The southwest corner location means you won't be dragged out of bed by the sunrise unless you want to be (try sunrise from the balcony), but you get a perfect panorama of each sunset. The 8th floor is high enough for wide views but not too high to see the funny things people do (if people watching is your sport.)
Furnishings are comfortable without being fussy. Linens are soft and fluffy and there are actually enough towels to work with (unlike some places we have been.) The setup supplies (dish soap, dishwasher tabs, etc.) were plentiful enough for our whole stay with normal family use.
We were here for a non-vacation stay during a portion of our home's Hurricane Michael repair. We brought 3 teenage girls, and got the 5 of us ready for school and work every day in the space, bathrooms, and hot water supply available. I think a typical family would find it plenty for vacation needs. There was enough space for homework and family dinner and everything else we needed. Kitchen appliances, dinnerware, and cooking ware were perfectly fine for daily cooking, so they should be fine for vacation needs as well.
Important pros- This unit has a door to the "bunk room" which is very helpful in getting everyone settled at a civilized hour. Many of the Shores of Panama 2 Bedroom + bunkroom units do not include a door there.
There is enough dining seating for the number of people the condo can "sleep" and enough glasses and plates for that number as well.
Great parking in the garage. Never underestimate parking!
The washer and dryer are very good quality if you will be staying long enough to need laundry.
Our teens love the pools at this resort.
Maybe not for you if-
If your vacation wouldn't be a vacation without 4 siblings cooking a gourmet meal together in a chef's kitchen. (Kitchen has all the normal equipment in good working order. It is fine for two or maybe three people to put together dinner in typical family style, but is not intended for 6 of your closest Food Network pals.)
If anyone in your group has issues with heights, the 8th floor may be a little too much for some. (It would be a shame to never open the curtains on that view- it is exactly as the photos show, sometimes better when the surf is up a little.)
Great place great time.
Condo was very nice and in great condition. This end unit with a wrap around balcony had awesome views of both the beach and the pool. Parking was on the same floor as the condo unit so loading and unloading was easy. The owner Russ Gonring was a pleasure to rent from. He was very responsive and easy to reach. Would definitely recommend this condo for Panama City Beach.
We loved having your family as a guest in our vacation home.
The views of the beach, sunsets and pool deck from the wrap around balcony are truly magnificent. We strive to provide an environment to create lasting memories and answer any question promptly. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to a return visit.
Warm regards, Russ
Party central, not family friendly
Location was recommended as “family friendly” place to stay and was one big party. All hours of the night, loud music, drinking, yelling off balconies and pool, and the smell of weed when you open the balcony door. The elevator situation was a nightmare, as only 1 was working. The condo unit itself was nice and clean. Great view and comfy beds.
We're glad you found our vacation home nice and clean with great views.
We strive to assist the guest during their stay any way possible. Regrettably I was not contacted about the situation until after your departure. I would have personally contacted security to address issues you experienced. June and July are the peak months with thousands of guests, the clientele in the building can vary. Unfortunately, it appears the week of your stay the association management did not meet the ultimate goal of a family friendly environment.
There are 6 elevators at the Shores of Panama. I confirmed with management, 1 of the 6 was out of order for a day during your stay and was back in operation as soon as possible.
The Shores of Panama Resort is very highly recommended for it's wonderful location and amenities offered.
Beautiful view !!!!
Condo very nice perfect wrap around view of ocean and pool .
Have stayed at a few condos and this location is by far my favorite!!! Beautiful pool, literally next door to pineapple whillys 😋. Win win
Darlene, we are very glad you enjoyed your stay at our vacation home and look forward to hearing from you on return visits.
